Torts played the team to get maximum success.
I don't think he did.

At ES, yes, I think he got as much out of them as he possibly could.

However, I think had he been open to adding another coach to the bench for the specific purpose of running the teams PP, we could have benefitted from that a great deal. Improving out PP from 29th in the league to 15th could have been the difference in the Devils CF series and would have made the Rangers a more dangerous team vs. Boston last year.

His absolute reluctance to add another body to the bench caused more problems for him that anything else he did.

Add to that that he basically admitted to ruining his relationship with Richards (HIS GUY) it's pretty clear that things were not going to get better for him here.

It was time to cut the guy loose.
